BANDAG Fiji has come to the aid of Nadi-based Animals Fiji which is relocating following the issuance of a vacation notice.

The company is helping Animals Fiji by providing a temporary land to set up from.

"They have given us a free lease on a very central location for the period of a minimum 12 months with a maximum of 24 months," a statement from the animal clinic said.

"As well, we would like to thank all who have donated towards our relocation.

"We have a total of $61,391 of the $300,000 we need to build our new home, temporary and permanent.

"Although we now can breathe a temporary sigh of relief that we have a stopgap location, there are many issues to be addressed before we can actually relocate to our temporary location. We need to have water and electricity installed, gain council building permits and approval and so forth."

The organisation needs four to six shipping containers to be converted into a temporary clinic.

Tonight, a fundraiser for the relocation project at The Mojito in Port Denarau, Nadi, will include performances by Fijian superstar Knox and Kiwi artist Tiki Taane.

"We will also need building supplies and labour of any sort. We still have a long, hard battle, but we are determined that the animals of Fiji will have a place to go when they are sick, injured or in pain."
